Thanks everyone. Lagniappe seems to throw some pretty nice markings on her puppies.
If you really look at them you will see they all have diffrent markings.
So if you take pictures and then compare them you will know who is who.
Though some I know right away there are a couple that do look a lot a like and you really have to study them to tell the diffrence. Well with one pair it is easy one is a girl and the other is a boy. With out looking at sexes though you just have to look for certain markings to tell who is who.
Lets put it this way though. They are a lot easier to tell apart then labs, rotties, newfies, and shepherd puppies. Unless you mark them some how.
Babu we have three of them and we're keeping one of the female puppies.
We have a Britt, and we were the first to pick from the litter. We couldn't take her home that day, as we had to prepare our home for a puppy, but we knew her when we came to pick her up 2 days later by the little orange blotch on her forehead. And the fact that she gave her Mom more grief than any of her siblings. She was the pack leader there...but here, our Maine Coon cat tells her what to do.
Awww, how adorable! With the Pugs...who we generally have all fawns, or if we get mutiples of one color in a Min Pin litter....I can always tell them apart, hubby never can. I guess its like having human twins, triplets. There is always some slight difference between each one, I can just KNOW who is who...of course its not like I dont eat, sleep and play with them 24 hours a day once they are born....I know all mine very well.
If all else fails...you have color coded paper collars, or nail polishes you can mark them with, lol.
Well thats the same here I can always tell the puppies apart, but hubby never can. He might know a couple, but as a whole he has no idea.
He also can never remember what I name them either.
As for the colored collars or nailpolish it all depends on the momma dogs. I know some people that have to cut patches of hair out of their puppies to know who is who, because mom will either rip off the collars or will naw at the nailpolish until it is all off.
Mine are good about it though. The first litter we used the colored collars. Then after that we just started putting colored rubberbands on their necks until I can get their pictures done. Usually at a day old sometime the day they are born. Zatarains last litter I took the pictures as they were being born.
